Superb! Every one. Love the Godstick. You've really got these guys down. - pity the full eight never happened; or are they still on their way..?

Blurry pictures or not, these guys are Awesome. Really tight, clean detail from that nasty old Mango wood. I used to love carving it for large pieces but tiny was always a challenge. You seemed to have met that challenge Head On. I'm with Tama in that it's a pity the "8" didn't happen, Yet?
Be Proud

Thanks Benella, Tamapoutini, Benzart and MooneyTiki for the kind words and encuragement. I will create 4 more, at least of that I'm certain.

But I'm afraid this ship has set sail. The wedding has happened and I threw in a few older tikis I had laying around and purchased one from a local carver to make up the remainder of the eight. But I've got new stuff in the works and will post them as soon as my computer issues are resolved.

Mahalos again for the kind words.

8 tikis is a pretty tall order. I think the most I've ever kept together was 4-5 for a show.
These latest guys are flat-out awesome Alien. You've really got a handle on the Hawaiian classics, the Ku in particular. I hope you get your tech problems sorted soon so we can see what you've got lined up next.

Alien,

Ooops! After begging for an update and you posting one - somehow I missed it. Eeek, my bad! So you didn't make the full order, but hey, the ones you did get done are fantastic. Man I love your stuff and thoroughly enjoy your Brady piece here. Are these big guys gone now or did you have to eat them since you didn't fill the quota? If you still have them it is a good thing - as they sure would be nice to have around. Very SVEET!

Well after my technical difficulty's with my computer(ever try to surf the net with a PSP). I hyper extended and broke my elbow playing jiu-jitsu. Making it tough to carve. 2 months later, elbow is heeling and I've just started to carve again.

This one I started first kind of a therapy piece as the wood is dry and soft.


This is an "in progress" Lono of mango. It didn't make the deadline and I just picked him back up recently.


Here's a better pick of one of the mango peices that did make the deadline.


Mahalos for lurking,
Aloha

Thanks Ben. You are too kind.
You have inspired me to go to the office and carve, right now.

Yeah he's a small tiki with some big mana.

the Koa came from a friend of mine in construction biz. He was demolishing a old house on the north shore. He called me to tell me the whole kitchen was solid Koa and the owners wanted it all tossed in the rubbish(more money than sense). I loaded my truck up with a lot of molding and cabinets. Unfortunately some of the wood was stolen from my truck while it sat at another job site.
